want unique data

Hi All,

I have a question again, In the code below in want to display data that is unique, there are many directories in which i am going and parsing a .su file and getting a string out, if i do ls $i | grep .su | $AWK -F"_" '{print $1} | uniq inside the for loop it will not work.

What do i do?

Thanks
Adi

Code:
#!/bin/sh

ECHO=/bin/echo
FIND=/bin/find
AWK=/bin/awk

ROOT_PATH=/net/icebox/vol/local_images/spins
STREAM_PATH=$ROOT_PATH/7.1

SHARE_ENTITY_PATH=`$FIND $STREAM_PATH . -depth -name ShareableEntities`
#$ECHO $SHARE_ENTITY_PATH

for i in $SHARE_ENTITY_PATH
do
ls $i | grep .su |  $AWK -F"_" '{print $1}'
done

  ls $i | grep .su |  $AWK -F"_" '{print $1}'
done | sort -u
